Boot problem on Asus Rampage IV Gene

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Okay so I've scoured the internet for days trying to figure out what my problem is to no avail. So here I am hoping I can get you guys to help me out. I will use a timeline of events to hopefully make this easier. If it isn't, well I'm sorry redface.gif

- Moved from Germany back to the states and shipped my computer to myself so I would get it way before my household goods shipment got to me.
- Picked up the computer with no evidence of damage
- Cleaned out computer with electric duster since I hadn't cleaned her out in awhile
- Hooked it all up exactly the same way it was previously
- Everything booted fine and I'm in windows (Yay!)
- Close out of my usual popups and immediately click my League of Legends icon to update it since it's been a couple patches since I've last played and I'd been aching to play it
- Screen goes black and computer is still running as if there was some sort of video driver failure.
- Try multiple restarts and get absolutely nothing on the screen
- Cleared CMOS and updated/reverted bios to 4+ different versions.
- Note: At this time I have a debug code of A2 and my boot_device_led is on
- I tinker around with things like removing connectors and the video card and reconnecting them and now I get a different debug code
- Debug code now is 34 and my DRAM_led is on
- Pull out all the ram and try them all in every config possible and I still have the same code and led
- Put them all back in and oddly I boot to the UEFI (Yay!) Wait....
- "The current bios setting does not fully support the boot device. . Click OK to enter the BIOS Setup. Press [F1] to enter the BIOS setup.
Go to Advanced > Boot > CSM Parameters, and adjust the CSM (Compatibility Support Module) settings to enable the boot device.
"
- Hmmm, Okay. So under my boot settings its not detecting any of my drives. I have a single SSD which boots windows and a raid setup with 2 mechanicals.
- At this point I swap sata cables multiple times in all sorts of ways and trying all the drives one by one and i'm getting nothing.
- Hook up a thumb drive in one of my USB slots though and boom, there it is in my boot menu
- Take the drives out and test them in my laptop and they work fine, so I know its not the drives.
- Went and bought a sata cable just to make sure that wasn't the issue, and no difference

In any case, the only thing I can think of right now is the power supply is bad, which I still feel is a reach since everything else seems to be working, or somehow my sata ports took a crap on me. The huge problem for me right now is all my stuff is still in transit right now so I can't do much troubleshooting without spending money on things I already have. So, I'm going to take the power supply to work tomorrow and meter it and hopefully rule that out. Other than that I honestly have no idea if I'm just retarded and missing some stupid setting or if i have a legit problem. Either way, if anyone here has anything like this happen to them please help me out. Would be much appreciated. And again, if the way I set up the timeline was annoying or unneeded, I apologize. Thanks guys.

I had similar problems after a rebuild recently, In the end I had to leave the first two sata ports empty, then it was able to discover the drives again - although I did have run optimized defaults.

I would try to test just your boot drive on each sata port and see what results you get, if you have not done so already. Once you get that working correctly and back into windows then, restart and try connecting the other drives, this worked for me, good luck wink.gif
